History in a Pecan Shell

Rancher Henry Hyman and his wife donated some of their land to the county for a school. The post office opened in 1924. Growth was slow and early figures arenít available but shortly after WWII, the community reported a population of 50 residents served by two businesses.

In 1945 the huge school district of Hyman was divided into the communities of Westbrook, Forsan and Colorado City. The ranch / community also had a radio beacon for the U.S. Air Force. This station remains in place, although it was decommissioned when the air base at Big Spring was closed.

The remains of a church keep it company along with a small community cemetery and the houses of the remaining families.
